St Johns Crappie Hitting Chartreuse Minnows

By: Dustin Slinker I’ve been excited all fall to fly down to Central Florida to fish crappie. Newnans and Orange Lake are lakes that I’ve read and heard about as being producers of big crappie in the Gainesville area, but I was more excited about the famous St Johns River system. We planned to spend [...]

Crappie Showing Now On Alabama’s Lake Martin

By: Chris Shaffer Sitting in the Huddle House in Alexandria City, Alabama, at 5:47 a.m. on Monday Eric Cagle of C&M Guide Service called me to ask where we were. We were supposed to meet him at the boat ramp on Lake Martin at six sharp. He was getting restless. The crappie were biting at [...]

Test Complete: Fire Dye Works On Saltwater Baits

By: Chris Shaffer For more than a year anglers have asked if Fire Dye works on live saltwater baits. Unfortunately, we hadn’t been able to answer that question. Our lab and field-testing has been preformed on freshwater species. Meanwhile, on a recent trip to North Carolina to film episodes of Pautzke Outdoors for catfish on [...]

Learn to Cure the Perfect Coastal Salmon Egg

By: Kyle Buschelman In the fall when coastal Chinook are available my success is a reflection of how good my bait is. Quality eggs and arming myself with multiple cures filled with different bite stimulants is the main ingredient to success. Using Fire Cure as the base I have three-to-four different cures in my boat [...]

Expedite Your Egg Cure With a Wet Brine

By: Duane Inglin The availability of Chinook and coho eggs can be plentiful in the fall and curing them is an easy process. Using a gallon Ziploc and BorX O Fire or Fire Cure there are numerous cures that many of us have written about for years. This is my favorite method when I’m only [...]

Try This New Egg Cure: Catch More Salmon

By: Kyle Deavers I’ve been fishing with the same egg cure recipe for the past two seasons and it’s helped me catch salmon daily. However, a few weeks ago my fishing partner came to me and told me he had an egg cure better that others I’d experimented with. Instead of using Fire Cure with [...]

Durham’s Falls Lake Stuffed with Pan Size Crappie

By: Chris Shaffer Maria’s winds churned up seas in Eastern North Carolina last week and altered our fishing schedule. Set to film Pautzke Outdoors on the coast Tuesday and Wednesday we opted to stay in the Triangle where conditions were more favorable. Having filmed a catfish episode on Lake Norman Monday we ended up making [...]

Columbia River Still Kicking Out Lots of Salmon

By: Connor Taplin Salmon fishing on the Columbia River continues to be great in the Portland area. However, the bite will likely slow in the next few weeks. Fortunately, anglers will be able to migrate upriver to follow the fish and remain in consistent action through the end of the month. We are seeing about [...]

Buoy 10 King Run Peaking Now

By: Kyle Buschelman Experts anticipated an above average run at Buoy 10 this year and that’s meeting expectations. I think this year is a normal Buoy 10 year. It’s not super good and it’s not slow like last year when we struggled largely due to water challenges. The run is lining up the way it’s [...]

Michigan Shoreline Experiencing Epic Salmon Bite

By: Kyle McClelland This is the best salmon fishing season I’ve seen on Lake Michigan since I was born. Not only are there good numbers of salmon, but the fish are big. This season 20-30 pounders are common. We catch them every trip. We haven’t caught any bigger than 40 pounds, but some anglers have [...]
